A Mountain Speaks

That distant valley
Far below
Was I...as a child
........Eons ago

A Vision Of Home

Somewhere within dwells the soul of a boy
And childhood dreams of Illinois
....With thoughts.....of home again

Stolen Moments

So...long...the day......so short....the hour
Stolen moments....angst...........deceit
......Another night.....sooo....long....the hour
Stolen moments......bittersweet

Black Man's Dilemma

Where would we go if told to leave
This land where our kidnapped forefathers grieved
For life as it once were
And not as destiny's mind perceived

African Brother

Who was the villain
When it all began
Some fair-haired stranger
From a faraway land

Passion's Pride

Alone.........I sit
By the fishing hole
Didn't bring..don't need
...No fishing pole

Distant Haze

There was a knock upon my door
…In…the light…was she
Grab your coat and in the rain
Come take a walk with me

An Ounce Of Crack

All around us
Youths are dying
Victimized by greed
Of a WALL STREET kind

Good And Evil

Devastation wrought
In agonizing ill
Of God's omnipotence
..Or..Satan's will
...

Because Of You...I Rise

An emotional moment
For there in the mail
Was a bundle of cards
All..wishing me well
...
